Welcome to Bay View Library's first entry on the @ Your MPL Branch blog. If you have been to Bay View, you may have noticed our collection of gargoyles located throughout the library. The gargoyles first began to take up residence at the library's opening twenty years ago. One of the staff at that time, inspired by the library's soaring ceilings, began to bring in small gargoyles to place in the nooks and crannies of the library. Throughout the years, the library collection has grown. To reward those of you who have found your way to our blog, we are having a contest. The first five readers who come to the Information Desk at Bay View Library and tell the reference staff exactly how many gargoyles we have will receive a prize. Only one prize will be awarded per family. Hope you enjoy our blog and see you soon at the Bay View Library. Happy gargoyle hunting!
